  • Sugar Beets In The Dark
    Tuesday, November 27, 2018 5:00 PM
    Back in my late 20’s, I would sometimes ride my bicycle to work. It was a little more of a challenge when the shift started an hour or two before sunrise. My wife needed the car, so it was either get there by bike or get there on foot. No, the bike did not have headlights; and, no, I did not use duct tape to secure a flashlight to the handle bars. But there were street lights for stretches along the way.

    The chaos of the Christmas shopping season begins this Friday. People will race around frantically to make sure everything is prepared. Gifts will be wrapped, trees will be decorated, ornaments hung, lights strung, desserts baked, cards sent, events attended, and memories made. And, before we know it, the chaos of the season will have come and gone. We’ll cleanup the wrapping paper covering our living room floors feeling a little conflicted, as we’re both sad and relieved that Christmas is over. 

  • What Is Our First Calling?
    Tuesday, November 13, 2018 2:52 PM
    Have you read Mark 3:13 before? I have read and re-read this verse, but not with the same intensity as I have read it recently. The verse says; “And He goeth up into a mountain, and He calleth unto Him whom He would;and they came unto Him.” The Lord called them to Him, not a task or a trip or a ministry. He called them unto Him. Why? He wanted to instill the message in them that was to be presented to the world.  He wanted to build a secure foundation in them for the work He sent them out to do. He wanted to empower them with the Holy Spirit. He wanted them prepared for whatever they might meet out there where He was sending them.

    “Going through the motions doesn’t please you, a flawless performance is nothing to you. I learned God-worship when my pride was shattered. Heart-shattered lives ready for love don’t for a moment escape God’s notice.”  (Psalm 51:16-17 “The Message” translation)

  • Heading Into The Day
    Tuesday, October 30, 2018 4:31 PM
    When I grew up, my family did not pray together. In fact, that kind of thing could get us into trouble. I would pray privately and secretly, whenever it seemed to me to be the right thing to do. 

  • Trust In His Word As We Face Change
    Tuesday, October 23, 2018 4:17 PM
    Living here in the Midwest, one is very familiar with the phase, “if you don’t like the weather here, wait awhile, and it will change.” We certainly seen that in mid­ October, warm one day, snowing the next, only for sunny days that followed.

    This is quite literally what happened at my dinner table the other night. Not with a dog because dogs don’t sit at my dinner table, that would just be weird. My daughter was in the middle of a sentence when she turned her head fast enough to give me whiplash, pointed out the window and yelled, “Squirrel!”

    We see so many things in the world getting thrown away or just getting pushed to the side or just not getting used anymore. Once something is used when we want something new. How about a horseshoe? It is used to protect the horse’s hooves from wearing down. We think about how dirty it gets. Its is stepped on all day, taken in water, mud and who knows what else. It doesn’t hurt the horse to have this on but it really helps them.

  • Rejoice In The Lord

     “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!” Philippians 4:4

    Do you remember the old westerns, and the phrase “reach for the sky?” It was implied by the person saying that if you didn’t surrender your weapons, you would soon be chock full of lead. The same can be said of us if we do not surrender to God. You may not end up full of lead, but you certainly will get a chance to melt some.
